"Live Through This" is a fantastic record. That's why people think Kurt had a hand in writing it.

I don't subscribe to that theory.

You know what Nirvana song rules? ''Swap Meet.'' I love that song so much and I never remember it until the one time every five years I listen ''Bleach.''


Swap Meet kicks ass

He was married to the bitch... It's absurd to think otherwise.

I think the influence is more apparent in the other direction; Courtney's influence is all over Kurt's In Utero lyrics (see: Heart-Shaped Box, Pennyroyal Tea, etc.) I'm sure two songwriters living together will naturally influence one another to a degree.

One unexpected result of the increased Nirvana focus in recent weeks has been that I've been listening to Hole for the first time in forever. Say what you will about Courtney but Live Through This is an excellent record.


Excellent?

Sure.

Violet, Plump, Jennifer's Body, Doll Parts, Softer Softest, Gutless: those are some great tunes.


Live through this was exceptional. Violet in particular is still amazing.

Their cover of gold dust woman from that era is also great

Wasn't corgan allegedly linked to live through this as well? Regardless, the performance us hers and it is excellent.


Their first album really sucked, though...

That's interesting. I hadn't thought about this the other way

Corgan definitely helped out during Celebrity Skin. He claimed as much during one of his Twitter wars with Courtney.

Not to overflow this thread with Hole talk, but Jessica Hopper put together a pretty interesting "oral history" piece on Live Through This recently: http://www.spin.com/articles/you-will-a ... ough-this/

They tried to get PJ Harvey to sing Milk It at the RRHOF induction. That would have been amazing.

Incesticide today for the first time in a long time. Probably my favorite Nirvana album. "Beeswax" always slays, every time.

Oof.

"A bitch with zits" might be the funniest putdown I've heard in a while though.

Its true that Beeswax and and Swap Meet are two great Nirvana songs. I also love Aero Zeppelin, Big Long Now, Paper Cuts and Hairspray Queen, especially the choruses.
